Comfortable and durable.

Our collection of shoes and boots that feature GORE-TEX® product technology is renowned for comfort, durability and, of course, water-resilience. Every Hotter style is designed to be cushioned, flexible and lightweight – but our clever GORE-TEX® walking shoes and boots add another technical element that has to be felt to be believed.

GORE-TEX® product technology isn’t actually a fabric, but a waterproof yet breathable membrane that sits between the outer material and lining of our GORE-TEX® walking boots and shoes, providing extra cushioning for those longer walks and ultimate protection from water.

Waterproof.

You and your feet can adventure easily knowing each step is protected by GORE-TEX® waterproof technology. Every microscopic pore in the membrane is small enough to prevent water getting into the shoe, but big enough to allow the moisture from inside to escape, resulting in fresh and dry feet.

When it comes to all your outdoor adventures, it’s a no-brainer. GORE-TEX® waterproof technology leave your feet dry and comfortable, whatever the weather.

Beautifully breathable.

The clever thing about GORE-TEX® shoes and boots is that water cannot get in, but the millions of tiny pores in the membrane allow moisture vapour to escape. This creates a comfortable, climate-controlled environment for your hard-working feet to keep them fresh and dry no matter how far you walk. 

Tried and tested.

The GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane is a registered trademark of W.L. Gore & Associates, who use state of the art machinery to test each pair of shoes to ensure they are completely water-tight.

Boots are filled with water and spun at high speeds. The resulting pressure forces water through even the smallest of holes to reveal leaks. If they don’t pass the test, they don’t go in the shoe box!
